‘Mending Legends’ will explore the physical and psychological impact of tendon injuries amongst sports players and will visit the team of CÚRAM researchers who are trying to design a new type of tendon implant – in the form of the world’s first 3D cell assembled tendon prototype. The ‘Tendon Therapy Train’ research project is led by Dr Dimitrios Zeugolis. Sports fanatic and seasoned sports presenter, Máire Treasa Ní Dhubhghaill, will present a number of informative interviews with scientists involved in this field of research and through the personal experiences of amateur and professional sports people, this documentary will highlight the progressive attitudes towards scientific research in Ireland – and what it could mean to the world of sport.
